Senior Expo planned in Encinitas

ENCINITAS — The Encinitas Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the City of Encinitas present the 2017 Senior Expo titled, “Embracing Retirement, Before and After 65.” The presenting sponsor for the event is Belmont Village Senior Living in Cardiff.

The free event — from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 25 at the Encinitas Community Center at 1140 Oakcrest Park Dr., is geared toward people who will be retiring soon, those who are already retired and adult children looking for options for their aging parents.

“The demographic of Encinitas residents weighs heavy on the Baby Boomer generation and because of that, having a Senior Expo right here in Encinitas is the perfect way for our community to educate themselves on the services available to them” says Bob Gattinella, CEO of the Encinitas Chamber of Commerce.

The main hall of the Community Center will be filled with exhibitors, including government agencies, health care, housing and senior care providers, along with an array of vendors offering fun and educational ideas and choices.

Presentations by Experts: Dr. Dolores Fazzino, “Help! How do I get the Most out of My Healthcare Experience?”; Sue Rutledge, “Will your Retirement Money Boat Float?”; Dr. Craig Grether, “Easy Tips to keep your Memory Sharp” and Mary Dale, “Medicare Made Easy.”

Delicious snacks will be available and there will also be opportunity drawings throughout the day and a commemorative bag for the first 300 attending the expo.
